I had a great trip of the san blas islands and I end up in Capurgana at la posada del gecko! What a great , relaxing atmosphere! Alberto's simple Italian cucine is amazing : best place in town to eat. The rooms are cozy and clean.

When we arrived after the horrible boat ride from Turbo we got told that there was a mix up and we can't have the private room we booked. They put us in a four bed dorm by ourselves at a cheaper rate though. Everybody was nice when we asked them something but it was generally hard to find anyone at... More

The double room was comfortable and clean, but for the price we paid it was a... More

Best place in Capurganà and Colombia so far! Really collaborative and sweet staff. The place, really nice, is in a good spot near the beach and the italian based food (five star pizza) it's really good. I was with friend but it's highly recommended for couples too

The hostel is great, run by an italian guy from tuscany. The rooms are big and spacious and there is a really nice garden where to sit after the beach. The hostel has also a nice restaurant, we tried the pizza which was one of the best ones we had in colombia!

Gecko is a great option in Capurgana. Perfect location in the centre of Capurgana with an international atmosphere. The internal garden is perfect to gather with friends or other tourists from all over the world eating a delicious dish of pasta or a pizza amongst the best in South America. Prices are very competitive and the place is perfect to... More

We enjoyed our stay (7 days). The hosts are wonderful and we had the only room with an air conditioner. It in a noisy part of town and the Bar at the Posada is active at night, but then it is all quiet when the city power goes off at around midnight. Price was good and we negotiated it down... More

I found this place by chance. Tough it doesn't have a swimming pool (well...the ocean is just few meters away) is by far the best place to stay in Capurgana. Cheap, friendly, small (just 6-7 rooms available) best price quality ratio. Do not miss the chance if you're going to Capurganà
